  4 G191 [G5660] Since we heard G5216 of your G4102 faith G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2532 , and G26 of the love G3588 {\i which G1519 ye have} to G3956 all G40 the saints,
  5 G1223 For G1680 the hope G3588 which G606 [G5740] is laid up G5213 for you G1722 in G3772 heaven G3739 , of which G4257 [G5656] ye have heard before G1722 in G3056 the word G225 of the truth G2098 of the gospel;
  6 G3588 Which G3918 [G5752] is come G1519 to G5209 you G2531 G2532 , as G1722 it is in G3956 all G2889 the world G2532 ; and G2076 G2592 [G5748] bringeth forth fruit G2531 , as G2532 it doth also G1722 in G5213 you G575 , since G3739 the G2250 day G191 [G5656] ye heard G2532 of it, and G1921 [G5627] knew G5485 the grace G2316 of God G1722 in G225 truth:
  7 G2531 As G3129 0 ye G2532 also G3129 [G5627] learned G575 from G1889 Epaphras G2257 our G27 dear G4889 fellowservant G3739 , who G2076 [G5748] is G5228 for G5216 you G4103 a faithful G1249 minister G5547 of Christ;
  8 G3588 Who G2532 also G1213 [G5660] declared G2254 to us G5216 your G26 love G1722 in G4151 the Spirit.
  9 G1223 For G5124 this cause G2249 we G2532 also G575 , since G3739 the G2250 day G191 [G5656] we heard G3973 0 it, do G3756 not G3973 [G5731] cease G4336 [G5740] to pray G5228 for G5216 you G2532 , and G154 [G5734] to desire G2443 that G4137 [G5686] ye may be filled G1922 with the knowledge G846 of his G2307 will G1722 in G3956 all G4678 wisdom G2532 and G4152 spiritual G4907 understanding;
  10 G5209 That ye G4043 [G5658] may walk G516 worthy G2962 of the Lord G1519 to G3956 all G699 pleasing G2592 [G5723] , being fruitful G1722 in G3956 every G18 good G2041 work G2532 , and G837 [G5746] increasing G1519 in G1922 the knowledge G2316 of God;
  11 G1412 [G5746] Strengthened G1722 with G3956 all G1411 might G2596 , according to G846 his G1391 glorious G2904 power G1519 , to G3956 all G5281 patience G2532 and G3115 longsuffering G3326 with G5479 joyfulness;
  12 G2168 [G5723] Giving thanks G3962 to the Father G3588 , who G2427 0 hath made G2248 us G2427 [G5660] qualified G1519 to G3310 be partakers G2819 of the inheritance G40 of the saints G1722 in G5457 light:
  13 G3739 Who G4506 [G5673] hath delivered G2248 us G1537 from G1849 the power G4655 of darkness G2532 , and G3179 [G5656] hath translated G1519 us into G932 the kingdom G846 of his G26 beloved G5207 Son:
  14 G1722 In G3739 whom G2192 [G5719] we have G629 redemption G1223 through G846 his G129 blood G859 , even the forgiveness G266 of sins:
  15 G3739 Who G2076 [G5748] is G1504 the image G517 of the invisible G2316 God G4416 , the firstborn G3956 of all G2937 creation:
  16 G3754 For G1722 by G846 him G2936 0 were G3956 all things G2936 [G5681] created G1722 , that are in G3772 heaven G2532 , and G1909 that are upon G1093 earth G3707 , visible G2532 and G517 invisible G1535 , whether G2362 thrones G1535 , or G2963 dominions G1535 , or G746 principalities G1535 , or G1849 powers G3956 : all things G2936 [G5769] were created G1223 by G846 him G2532 , and G1519 for G846 him:
  17 G2532 And G846 he G2076 [G5748] is G4253 before G3956 all things G2532 , and G1722 by G846 him G3956 all things G4921 [G5758] consist.
  18 G2532 And G846 he G2076 [G5748] is G2776 the head G4983 of the body G1577 , the church G3739 : who G2076 [G5748] is G746 the beginning G4416 , the firstborn G1537 from G3498 the dead G2443 ; that G1722 in G3956 all G846 things he G1096 [G5638] may have G4409 [G5723] the preeminence.
  19 G2106 [G5656] For it pleased G3754 the Father that G1722 in G846 him G2730 0 should G3956 all G4138 fulness G2730 [G5658] dwell;
  20 G2532 And G1517 [G5660] , having made peace G1223 through G129 the blood G846 of his G4716 cross G1223 , by G846 him G604 [G5658] to reconcile G3956 all things G1519 to G846 himself G1223 ; by G846 him G1535 , I say, whether G1909 they are things on G1093 earth G1535 , or G1722 things in G3772 heaven.
  21 G2532 And G5209 you G5607 [G5752] , that were G4218 once G526 [G5772] alienated G2532 and G2190 enemies G1271 in your mind G1722 by G4190 wicked G2041 works G1161 , yet G3570 now G604 [G5656] hath he reconciled
  22 G1722 In G4983 the body G846 of his G4561 flesh G1223 through G2288 death G3936 [G5658] , to present G5209 you G40 holy G2532 and G299 unblameable G2532 and G410 unreproveable G846 in his G2714 sight:
  23 G1489 If G1961 [G5719] ye continue G4102 in the faith G2311 [G5772] grounded G2532 and G1476 settled G2532 , and G3361 are not G3334 [G5746] moved away G575 from G1680 the hope G2098 of the gospel G3739 , which G191 [G5656] ye have heard G3588 , and which G2784 [G5685] was preached G1722 to G3956 every G2937 creature G5259 which is under G3772 heaven G3739 ; of which G1473 I G3972 Paul G1096 [G5633] am made G1249 a minister;
  24 G3739 Who G3568 now G5463 [G5719] rejoice G1722 in G3450 my G3804 sufferings G5228 for G5216 you G2532 , and G466 [G5719] fill up G5303 that which is behind G2347 of the afflictions G5547 of Christ G1722 in G3450 my G4561 flesh G5228 0 for G846 his G4983 body's G5228 sake G3603 [G5748] , which is G1577 the church:
  25 G3739 Of which G1473 I G1096 [G5633] am made G1249 a minister G2596 , according to G3622 the dispensation G2316 of God G3588 which G1325 [G5685] is given G3427 to me G1519 for G5209 you G4137 [G5658] , to fulfil G3056 the word G2316 of God;
  26 G3466 Even the mystery G3588 which G613 [G5772] hath been hid G575 from G165 ages G2532 and G575 from G1074 generations G1161 , but G3570 now G5319 [G5681] is revealed G846 to his G40 saints:
  27 G3739 To whom G2316 God G2309 [G5656] would G1107 [G5658] make known G5101 what G4149 is the riches G1391 of the glory G5127 of this G3466 mystery G1722 among G1484 the Gentiles G3739 ; which G2076 [G5748] is G5547 Christ G1722 in G5213 you G1680 , the hope G1391 of glory:
  28 G3739 Whom G2249 we G2605 [G5719] preach G3560 [G5723] , warning G3956 every G444 man G2532 , and G1321 [G5723] teaching G3956 every G444 man G1722 in G3956 all G4678 wisdom G2443 ; that G3936 [G5661] we may present G3956 every G444 man G5046 perfect G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus:
  29 G1519 For G3739 which G2872 0 I G2532 also G2872 [G5719] labour G75 [G5740] , striving G2596 according to G846 his G1753 working G3588 , which G1754 [G5734] worketh G1722 in G1698 me G1722 G1411 mightily.
